On Aug. 24, 2018, starting at 2:30 p.m. the Elmore County Commissioners will hold a two separate public hearings/meetings regarding the very complex Cat Creek Energy project. Both events will take place in the basement of the Elmore County Courthouse building at 150 South 4th East St, Mountain Home, ID 83647.
#1. 2:30 p.m. on Friday, August 24: “The First Amendment Relative to the Cat Creek Energy, LLC Conditional Use Permits” hearing pertains only to the official “Water Diversion and Delivery” issue from the proposed construction of the Cat Creek Reservoir on Little Camas Prairie. Please remember, this proposed reservoir will be interconnected with Anderson Ranch Reservoir and Little Camas Reservoir where toxic blue-green algae bloom health advisories are in effect for that body of water. This is a big deal, as toxic cross-contamination from Little Camas Reservoir to the fishery in Anderson Ranch Reservoir is a possibility.

Public testimony will be accepted during this hearing. If you cannot attend this meeting, you can provide written testimony to the Elmore County Commissioners prior to the public hearing.
#2 Friday, August 24 after 2:30 p.m: Immediately following Hearing #1, the Elmore County Commissioners will hold deliberations regarding the July 26, 2018, Cat Creek Energy rehearing.
Normally, no further public testimony is accepted after a public hearing but there may still be a small window of opportunity to provide feedback to County Commissioner Wes Wootan and County Commissioner Bud Corbus.
As of Aug. 13, 2018, we are working on getting an email address for the commissioners.
